    Default after upgrade to kernel 4.15 kwin fails to complete desktop

    hi,

    Updated Tumbleweed to openSUSE-release-20180203-1.2.x86_64
    together with update of kernel to kernel-default-4.15.0-1.5.x86_64

    after which kwin fails, result: black screen except for mouse pointer
    and System Monitor window showing without frame (from last shut-down)

    zypper dup and yast show no conflicts and no updates available

    any suggestions?

    cheers

    Yes, look at this thread.
    Had the same problem, solved it by deleting the contents of /var/lib/sddm/.cache and ~/.cache.
